  • Aristos Labs helped me, not only to crystallize my idea, but to define SITSecure’s USP. It was a clearly actionable step-wise journey from idea to concept to starting-up to execution to MVP to market presence. SitSecure was ready in record time. Having met Purushartha, and being accelerated at Aristos Labs, are two of the most profound experiences of my life.

  • We at Motion receive a great deal of clarity through our ongoing consultations with Aristos Labs. We know some things, but it is extremely helpful to have things put into perspective, into order, and receive clear direction on how to take the business forward.

  • I was in the process of partnering with a friend of mine to start DJ Pundits and was uncertain of the negotiations we had had. Aristos Labs showed me how to proceed by demonstrating to me how to communicate clearly and showing me the significance of this clarity for a long-term association. We met Purushartha from Aristos Labs, and in a matter of a few hours, he brilliantly illustrated, point for point, possible pitfalls in the association we were about to embark on. Due to his inputs my partner and I share a much better and more creative relationship. DJ Pundits is strong and getting stronger, much faster than we imagined, and I'm very sure we avoided a huge future failure, by following at the right time the directives designed by Aristos Labs.

  • After meeting Purushartha, I got to know that, given a proper structure, I can actually sell my talent, in a coherent way. I have now found the path on which I can move to success, and I can say that Aristos Labs tailored this algorithm of success, for me. I have clarity in my dream and actionable items to work on. I look forward to the exciting journey from ideation to execution, and to my first MVP. I am really grateful to Purushartha for his hands on approach, and for taking so much personal time for me.

  • I was very sure that I want to start something in food, but I had no idea where to begin. The thought process that my husband Abhishek and I were had essential and basic flaws in it. This would have taken months to realize and maybe years to correct. But an evening of talks with Purushartha gave us the actionable approach to take this to execution and MVP in a very smooth way. Also, Purushartha’s insights into the operations, marketing and promotion and the food industry were amazing. It was a fantastic experience.
